Re: PARI/GP for Windows doesn't support umlauts and diacritical signs but it's possible

The suggestion from Jens Schmidt,

1. Create a file inputrc.txt in home directory with following contents:
  set convert-meta off
  set input-meta on
  set output-meta on
2. Set environment variable INPUTRC to the absolute path of inputrc.txt

does work on Windows 8.1, with both GP2.4.1 and GP2.9.2.
Also on Vista/GP2.4.1. Now I can form a string in Pari with my real name (:-).

It would be nice if there was also a magic readline setting that would make the
cursor appear when moving it in a long line in GP2.9.2 (as in GP2.4.1).
